All have played against several of the poker bullies. Not the type of bullies who call you many names but the kind that push all at the table out of the pots by aggression. The players may bet and elevate you till you feel you have no option to combat fire with fire.
You may begin betting and elevate back but this can only favour the bully. The entire point of the strategy of the bully is to get other players and make them play out of their comfort zone. This may lead to some mistakes that the bully may get some profit.
Water is the element that is linked with serenity. The patience can beat the aggression in the poker game. Many of the poker players know that the bully is not playing a range of hands that is of some profit and they can make a huge mistake.
